2-00 | The Lord’s Walk| 13/2 A tricky opening affair, with many holding claims on previous form. The early favourite, Compass Point, has failed to properly settle over a mile.

CHOOSING what to wear for a wedding reception can take weeks, even months to decipher. You want to look super smart, sophisticated and glam for such a special occasion. From dainty fascinators to flowing gowns, there are so many options when it comes to choosing your outfit. But the main rule of thumb, is to generally look like you made an effort to celebrate. (left to right) James and Pippa Matthews and Pixie Geldoff and George Barnett both serving strong wedding guest looks A wedding reception is the event held after a couple’s ceremony AKA the best bit – there’s cake, speeches and a whole lotta, very cute, inter-generational dancing. Often there are more people invited to the reception than the service, so don’t be disheartened if that’s you. It’s still an elaborate affair with a very formal dress code. Whether it’s in summer or winter, you’ll need to adapt your wedding guest ensemble accordingly to suit the season and temperature. The only reason you should ever sweat is from too much dancing! To help you arrive both smart and stylish, we’ve created some fabulous looks perfect for a wedding reception, from summer to winter. Breezy Summer’s Day Knowing British weather, even during summer you could need a cover-up on cooler days. But choosing a coat or jumper can make or break a smart dress code. Enter, a sleek linen trench. A navy dress is always a fail-safe staple – the timeless shade can take you from summer to winter. Accessorise with neutral nude hues because they work with anything, so it’s a fashionable investment.

Now you have an excuse to buy this midnight blue devoré maxi from & Other Stories. Keep it classy with a minimalist suede clutch and heels and let the fabulous fabric combo do all the talking.

WEDGE sandals divide opinions like marmite. But everyone knows they’re the comfiest high-heel around. They were originally created for orthopedic reasons in 1935 by the legendary Salvatore Ferragamo – they’re made to support and look after your feet. (left to right) Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton and Margot Robbie working the wedge A year later in 1936, the block one-piece heels entered fashion and haven’t left since. And out of all the wedges, sandal styles continue to be the most popular across the globe – fortunately everyone left sneaker wedges in the 1990s (minus a few labels, like Isabel Marant and DSquared2). The very first styles were crafted with cork for its lightweight feel, and they still are today. We can’t fault them – they’re light, easy-to-walk in and don’t give your feet cramps if you wear them for a long time. Come spring and summer, you’ll need a pair as they let your feet breathe and their cork soles are soo boho chic. Across the celeb-sphere, different stars have given us endless style inspo from recent Margot Robbie to early 2000s Paris Hilton. Whether you’re going to a beach party or just want to look cute for a warm evening out, there’s a wedge sandal for every sunny occasion. And we’ve found you the cheapest styles available to buy now.  1. Black Suedette Wedges The Wide Fit Black Suedette Cross Strap Cork Wedges from New Look promise supreme comfort If you’re planning to wear heels all night, wedge sandals can be a chic option that you won’t end up taking off – try these black ones from New Look. These wedges have the trademark cork heel, at an elegant 9cm, with an espadrille trim, cross straps and a soft suedette finish. They’re even a wide fit so they’ll be super comfy! Team them with an LBD to dress them up or with cut-off mom jeans and a cropped jumper for a cool daywear look – the cork wedge means you can make these look super casual if you like. Wide Fit Black Suedette Cross Strap Cork Wedges, £19.99 from New Look – buy here 2. Gold Wedges These Gold Embellished Wedge Heel Sandals have a lightweight cork sole George at Asda are here to spice up your holiday wardrobe with these metallic mule wedges, for under £15! They’re set on a lightweight cork sole (fab for packing light) and one of the straps is elasticated, to ensure they never slip off when you’re strutting your stuff. Embellished with a shimmering diamante strip down the rose-gold upper, they’ll add glamour to your summer evening-wear wardrobe without a glamorous price tag. Ideal. Gold Embellished Wedge Heel Sandals, £12.50 from George at Asda – buy here 3.

Let’s lighten things up with a little story. I had a roommate who absolutely hated Carvelas ( I agree, sorry) and we’d always make jokes about it. We’d make up scenarios where a guy would fill out all the boxes, was a strong 10 and then you look down and he’s wearing Carvelas. That joke […]
